    Having got my HP 54510A working again after invaluable help from this forum I have a question about using it.

    Is there any way to input into the X axis? I can do this on my ancient Telequipment D31 'scope but the image on this is now very dim. I would have thought that there should be some way of doing it but I cannot find anything in the instruction book. I would like to try it with a wobbulator I have tried to resurrect but need an X input

    Thank you

    Paul

    Some brief googling suggests it has an xy mode. Check the documentation on the Agilent web site. My phone is not the best place to read huge PDFs.

    Ok, thanks I will have a look. I couldn't find anything in the manuals that came with it.

    Check this. (Sorry, Keysight, not Agilent)

    Looks like the math functions are +, -, invert and vs (see page 15). The last of these is the X-Y function.

    Thank you. That looks like just what I need. I was sure it would do it somehow.

    Thanks
